Coffee and a Canon IVSB2
Well.. Do I got a treat for you! Two posts in one! Ok for starters, I finally fixed one of my cameras that Ive been dying to shoot! All in all it took me a whole week of opening up this bad boy up... putting it back.. and repeating that process over and over a few times.
But finialy I got it to work, the problem was in the gears needing to be cleaned. In the end.. after a bit of lighter fluid and some watch oil my lil canon was firing like a beast!
With the camera firing like a champ I decided to take it out for a spin... and of course that meant visiting some of my stomping grounds.. the antique stores!
As you can tell... the camera and lens (canon 50mm 1.8 LTM) preformed perfectly =) But where the real magic was in the fact that the above photo you see was developed in coffee =) yes folks.. not only does coffee wake up the sleepy photographer in you but it also develops your film!
For those that are interested in taking a their hand into some good ol coffee development the mixture is pretty easy. For your enjoyment heres the recipe =)
1. 1 litre water
2. 100 ml washing-soda or 54 gramms
3. 16 ml vitamin-C or 16 gramms
4. 160 ml coffee or 40 gramms
Alright thats it for now, but stay tuned I have two more shoots this week... not to mention a shoot from last week that still needs some blogging love!
